Correctional Officer Amanda Baker succumbed to injuries sustained two days earlier when she was attacked by a 15-year-old inmate in the Scotts Bluff County Juvenile Detention Center.

The inmate, who was awaiting trial on an armed robbery charge, attacked and strangled Officer Baker after she entered his cell at approximately 2:00 am. She was transported to Regional West Medical Center where she was pronounced brain dead. She was kept on life support so her organs could be donated.

She passed away on February 16th, 2014.

Officer Baker had served with the Scotts Bluff County Detention Center for just over 1-1/2 years. She is survived by her son.

My condolences to CO Baker's family, friends, and colleagues of the Scotts Bluff County Detention Center. Concerning the wicked, at Proverbs 4:16,17 it reads "they cannot sleep unless they do what is bad. They are robbed of sleep unless they cause someone's downfall. They feed themselves with the bread of wickedness, and they drink the wine of violence." Such a wicked act of violence!

At Psalm 37:10, Jehovah God promises that "the wicked will be no more". Along with wickedness, God also promises to eliminate death as well. Revelation 21:4 says "he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away." I pray God's promise concerning our loved ones who have fallen asleep in death bring comfort to all who knew and loved Amanda.
